"This is an interesting collection that deserves to be adopted as a key text within information science courses. Award-winning, internationally renowned editors have enticed a number of experts, some with industry experience, to provide high-quality contributions. The solid chapters discussing core fields that make up its coverage – information seeking, information behaviour,information retrieval – assure its place on reading lists. The editors have ensured new developments receive attention but not at the expense of the essentials of the fields."
